bomber tamerlan tsarnaev, and cnn's nick paton walsh is live in moscow with the details on again what could be a really key development here, nick. >> john, let's reel back a little bit and explain to you why the pictures you're seeing of the very early morning raid yesterday in a village in dagestan, and the fact they k l killed shakhrudin askhabov relates to this whole bombing. shakhrudin askhabov we've seen him hanging out with the people in the same group run by abu dujan. abu dujan is a key militant killed in december by russian special forces. he's linked to the bombing case because a video of that man was linked to by tamerlan tsarnaev on his youtube page. the link is certainly there. we don't know if these people ever met. we do know tamerlan tsarnaev was interested in abu dujan and do we know russian forces hunted down and killed one of the members of abu dujan's group. this man they killed today was the brother of the successor of the leadership of that particular organization. we don't know if it's purely coincidental. perhaps. but it's clear that russian special forces ar

two. cnn's nick paton walsh spoke with an aunt of the suspects in da dagestan. >> reporter: she knew the alleged elder boston bomber as a child and saw tamerlan tsarnaev grow up and then leave for america. but strangest to his aunt was his return here last year a devout muslim. >> translator: they hadn't prayed before. they went to america. nobody taught him. he learned everything himself. at the same time, we were happy about it because he didn't start doing drugs or alcohol. i mean, he doesn't speak to other women. >> reporter: she saw him for four of the six months he was here, and he went to chechnya twice. >> translator: yes, he went to chechnya for a couple of days. i don't know where those relatives lived. of i mean, the relatives from his father's side. >> reporter: as pictures of boston played out around the world, she reveals that she rang the boys to see if they were well but later that week they rang her allegedly when they were on the run just the day before taller lan died. the day before she said they spoke. it was like always, mommy, everything is fine, we're totally
in the week. nick paton walsh is in the tsarnaev hometown right now. you met and talked to both the mother and father this week, do we know where they went? >> we know they were pretty anxious to retain their privacy after what's obviously been a very difficult week, a lot of media here and on top of that the accusations against both of their sons and investigation by the fbi and russian security. we have though made our own journey to look into the past of this particular family. and being inside the town chechnya, the war-torn the heart of all the volatility of this region and being to the hometown of tsarnaev family there. heading into chechnya you feel the weight of two brutal wars. for an independence moscow would never allow. its ruins rebuilt over the only upside of the kremlin's heavy hand, the tsarnaev's family identity was forged here. we found their hometown and what's left of the family home. in its ruins lie the brutalized past the brothers must have grown up with. tamerlan fled this town when he was about 11 before the second war began. and this street was bombed. it's hard t
's an arrest warrant out for her, so she's not coming back here. nick paton walsh had a long conversation with the suspects' mother. she's got a theory about the bombings of which i should point out she offers no proof for, there's no factual basis for what she says. she's, obviously, distraught, but she also has theories about her sons have been implicated. take a look. >> tamerlan was close friends with him, so they think that misha made him to become more -- more deeply religious, you know. that's why somebody told them that misha was the one who influenced on him. >> reporter: you met misha? >> of course i met misha. >> reporter: describe to me, what kind of guy? >> very nice, nothing wrong. very intelligent. very, like, nothing to talk about. >> reporter: okay, okay. what else did they ask you about his trips here? were they particularly interested in the time he came to dagestan? >> about who, tamerlan? well, all questions were about tamerlan. >> reporter: and his trip here, two trips? two trips, right, one in 2011 and one in 2012? >> no, only 2012. >> reporter: only 2012, okay. tha
, but his family moved to canada when he was a teenager. nick paton walsh joining us live from moscow. nick, explain who this guy william plotnikov was and the possible links, possible links, to tamerlan tsarnaev. >> reporter: well, investigators are looking to see if there's link because of the sheer parallel between william plotnikov, a north american canadian box somewhere tam tsarnaev, also born in former soviet union, moving to north america, and a keen boxer as well. they were both, it seems, in dagestan at the same time. most importantly, the key link seems to be tamerlan tsarnaev left russia just a couple of days after the death of william plotnikov in an ambush by russian special forces. as you say, there's no key evidence suggesting there was a link or contact between them. the parallels are just there. and they're glaring. that's why investigators are looking at it, wolf. >> as you know, the russians alerted the u.s. about tamerlan tsarnaev back, what, 2011. earlier today president obama asked about how well the russians are cooperating in the bombing investigation. in his words,
their reaction. nick paton walsh is joining us from southern russia, he's in dagestan. nick, you spoke with the suspect's aunt. what did she say? >> reporter: a number of interesting things. firstly, that when he came back last year to dagestan, tamerlan tsarnaev, the older brother, he went tries to chechnya to visit relatives. but she was struck by how he had embraced devoutly the islamic faith. here's what she had to say. is there a connection between this gun fight and one of the boston bombers? the youtube page suggests there might be. he put up a link to a video he put up a link to a video and it was removed, but cnn has now found it and it shows this man. it's an islamist militant. russian special forces hit his hideout last december to kill as many as six militants inside. the grisly aftermath showing heavy weapons, but also the heavy hand used to kill them. four months later, the marks remain of the tit for tat violence fueling militancy across the region. neighbors told us the young man who once lived here seamed peaceful, ordinary, but in the dust lies a question why did tsar
.s. is accusing them of being terrorists and will not allow them to see their surviving son. nick paton walsh is live in dagestan with the latest. good morning, nick. >> good morning. she had this press conference which i believe is still ongoing.she said she received gs from her lawyer and if she goes to the united states she won't be arrested on these outstanding charges to deal with shoplifting. that's odd to me because i spoke to her earlier on and she did suggest she was concerned about that. maybe she's trying to force the issue. she goes on to saying, according to my colleague, they showed a pictures of dead body of tamerlan. i did not look. i could not believe it was my son. she said, she mentioned that she herself feels accuse of being a terrorist and goes on to say, they already told us they will not let us see dzhokhar. now, that is also interesting because during the conversation i had with her she wasn't sure if that was possible or not. so it seems like a more emotional plea here trying to seem like the wrong party and perhaps push u.s. authorities into a more sympathetic recept
as to a motive. nick paton walsh joins us now from dagestan to explain what is in this youtube clip. >> absolutely. shortly after his return from russia to the united states, tamerlan tsarnaev posted on his youtube channel a link to a video of an extremist who was killed not far from where i'm standing by russian special forces. just last december. is there a connection between this gun fight involving militant and police in dagestan, and one of the boston bombers? the you if tube page of deceased brother tamerlan tsarnaev suggests there might be. he put up a link to a video titled abu dujana. the video was removed but cnn has now found it, and it shows this man. abu dujana is the name used by an islamist militant. gadzhimurad dolgatov. russian special forces hit the hideout last december. an armored car brought in to kill as many as six militants inside, including doll go atf. the grisly aftermath showing their heavy weapons, but also the heavy hand used to kill them. four months later, the marks remain of the time for tat violence fueling militancy across this region. neighbors to

to tamerlan tsarnaev. cnn's nick paton walsh is live in moscow with details for us on this development. really breaking overnight, nick. >> absolutely. the early hours of sunday morning that this raid you're seeing, remarkably violent it appears, was aimed at trying to kill the man. let me wind back a little bit and explain to you why he's significant in the tsarnaev case. he is part of a militant group led by a man called abu dujen, a video of him was by tamerlan tsarnaev on his youtube channel. we don't know if the two men met but it's interesting that this man went. he links the video of him. a member of that militant group, his brother is reported, became the leader of that militant group once abu dujen was killed and i can show you some pictures of him killed in the early morning special forces raid in the forest with the abu dujen militant group. we don't know if the man you've just seen or abu dujen ever met tamerlan tsarnaev. the link is from his youtube page. we do know while they're handing information to the american counterparts at the fbi there are ongoing special forces raids jus
was on the run at the time was a true angel. his words. a true angel. he was framed. our nick paton walsh found the father to ask a few more questions. this is the cnn exclusive. the first time he has spoken since his younger son was captu captured. >> cnn. i'm with cnn. i'm so sorry, sir. we wanted to hear your story. that was all. it's a very difficult time for you. we want to give you a chance to tell people how you feel about this. we just didn't really have a chance to properly hear all you have to say about the terrible circumstances you're in. your sons didn't do this? are you going to america? when will you leave? you will forgive me, sir. i know it's a difficult time for you. i'm just trying to do my job. i understand. when is the last time you spoke to them? have you been in touch with special services here? what do they have to say to you? okay. i understand. >> we're going to go to dagestan live and talk to nick paton walsh later. he caught up with the father of these two suspects. also i'll speak live within the next few minutes the police chief of watertown here outside of boston
about links to jihadists on the scene. cnn's nick paton walsh is in southern russia. >> reporter: is there a connection between this gun fight involving militants and police in dagestan and one of the boston bombers? the youtube page of tamerlan tsarnaev suggests there might be. he put up a link to a video titthat was removed, but cnn has now found it. it shows this man. ab due due giuliani is the name used by an islamist militant. russian special forces hit the hideout last december, an armored car brought in to kill as many as six militants inside, including doll caught auf, the grisly photos afterward ashowing the heavy hand used to kill them. four months later, the marks remain of the pit for at that time violence fueling militants across this region. neighbors told us the young man who once lived here seemed peaceful, ordinary, but in the dust lies a question -- why did tsarnaev's youtube page linked to the rants of the militant who died here? in a town where tsarnaev's father lived and tamerlan visited last year. you can see how intense the violence must have been against t
they will be coming to the united states from russia. they spoke to cnn's nick paton walsh. tell us what the father and mother said to you today. >> reporter: wolf, i spoke to them earlier on today. they were quite clear, the father very brief in conversation saying simply, i am sick, very sick. then the mother able to elaborate more saying he was, indeed, very ill, having issues with blood pressure, appears to be shaking, as well. some serious issues there. of course, these are affecting their travel fans. their father had originally attended to travel to the united states. of course, with his health, that is now put on hold indefinitely. the mother very clear in her eyes, she would travel to the united states regardless of the risk against her, potentially, for outstanding allegations of shoplifting or even as the investigation begins, suggesting she might be wanted for further questioning, she would go to the united states if she was promised she could see her son dzhokhar. >> a raid over the weekend, here's the question, nick, any direct link or even indirect link to the boston bombing? >> repo

. the terrorists of the boston bombing suspects live in the republic of dagestan in southern russia. nick paton walsh is there. he just spoke with the mother of the two suspects. he joins us from the capital city of dagestan with more. how did the interview with the mother go? >> reporter: wolf, very distraught. during the conversation which we had earlier on in the evening, she believed that tamerlan was, in fact, still alive. later it transpired, she saw pictures on social media of his dead body and overcome grief. much in her mind conspiratorial. believing in the innocence of her sons, mistaken identity initially. but now the revelation it was tamerlan and dzhokhar, in her mind, caught up in this -- or at least accused of these crimes by u.s. officials, really struggling to take that on board. she believes dzhokhar, unable to speak, under medical treatment in the hospital, that he has been robbed of his voice, in her words, so he can't properly defend himself. i asked why did this happen to her sons? she said because they are muslims. she herself feels under threat along with her husband. no

you here because this is the latest picture we have. nick paton walsh is live in moscow. help us connect the dots. what if anything is the connection? >> reporter: well, what you've just seen there is what resulted in the death -- it's a raid that resulted in a raid against a hideout there in dagestan where militants working under the group abu dujan were under attack. and shakhrudin askhabov is part of abu dujan's militant group. why does it relate back to the boston bombings? because tamerlan linked from his youtube account on to that particular page with abu dujan. the raid carried out very early in the morning yesterday. russian special forces tracking down askhabov. it's not clear if askhabov met tsarnaev or even if abu dujan who used to be the leader of the group that askhabov worked in, if he met tsarnaev. what we do know is this hunt is ongoing. special forces tracking these people down and they belonged to a group linked to on tamerlan's youtube account. >> so now we're getting at it. let's take a half a step backwards because one of the big key questions here is who is
to pursue that argument. john? >> all right, nick paton walsh in dagestan for us this morning. speaking to the mother of the suspect. nick, our thanks to you. >>> dzhokhar tsarnaev may have conveyed that there was no foreign terrorist groups that were involved in these attacks but there are certainly lingering questions like somehow do the brothers get their guns? how did they get the explosive supplies? barbara starr joins us from washington right now with that angle. what can you tell us? >> good morning, john. you're absolutely right. the claim by the younger brother, of course, is that they acted alone. but investigators want to know if there is someone, somewhere, who knows how they pulled it off. one week after authorities say that tsarnaev brothers atacked boston -- >> the two suspects were armed with handguns at the scene of the shoot-out. >> reporter: but neither brother had a license for a gun. a senior u.s. official says investigators are looking at the brothers' connections to any individuals or groups that might have trained them to make explosives, or supplied them with ma
